Fantastic place for food

Very friendly atmosphere, the service is really good. Food is very very good and you have lots to choose from. You have Malaysia which is a bit spicy which I love brings a whole new lot of flavours. You will not be disappointed

Have been here a couple of times over the last 2 years. I find that this place has a good menu, and serves a good variety of Malaysian/Chinese cuisine. I love their lunch menus where they do a set-menu for a Soup of the Day, main meal and a drink for less than a tenner - great value for money!

Had a lovely meal, and really enjoyed the general ambiance & busyness of the restaurant. We went with recommendations of the proprietor - really delicious. We had a special beef curry & a buttery pork. Def worth a visit.

There was a very loud group sitting by us that made it very uncomfortable to enjoy our evening. The food was good and reasonably priced, drinks where a little expensive though. Staff were not very welcoming and almost made you feel like you had had enough from the eat all you like menu. I have not had the urge to... More

As a regular both at Yan Woo and a visiter to Malaysia i can recommend the food, worth trying the Malaysian specials as kust as good as in KL. The nasi goring has to be tasted if you enjoy quality food.
